December 2008, father taken by ambulance to Whiston Hospital in severe pain (stomach) was left in a cubicle in discomfort for 2-3 hours while what seemed like drunks and drug addicts being dealt with. He was given morphine and sent home as he had been in A&E longer than guidelines. He was diagnosed with constipation. I found him dead at home the next morning as he had a perforated stomach ulcer. On website searches I discovered he had every textbook symptom of this.
